Greetings from Ireland

Did you ever met a leprechaun and his pot of gold?? No?? Maybe because you wasn’t looking at the right end of the rainbow!!!Greetings from ireland leprechaun

For those who doesn’t know who Leprechaun is:

A leprechaun (Irish: leipreachán) is a type of fairy in Irish folklore. Usually taking the form of an old man, clad in a red or green coat, who enjoys partaking in mischief. Like other fairy creatures, leprechauns have been linked to the Tuatha Dé Danann of Irish mythology.[1] The Leprechauns spend all their time busily making shoes, and store away all their coins in a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If ever captured by a human, the Leprechaun has the magical power to grant three wishes in exchange for their release. Popular depiction shows the Leprechaun as being no taller than a small child,[2] with a beard and hat, although they may originally have been perceived as the tallest of the mound-dwellers (the Tuatha Dé Danann).

      Oh Manu, I’m still looking for the leprechaun, but I must be looking at the wrong end 😉 It was my pleasure.
